In December 2009, we brought together 40 artists in a windy corner of Maidenhead Town Centre. Tomorrow will be the collective achievement of over 200 awesome artists, muscians, performers, designers, specialist teachers and friends.
So this is where we (Harri, Marie, Steph, Steph & Carly) say thank you to...
The awesome Claires Court Schools (Hugh, Rosemary, Jan, Frances, Lynne et al) and all who sail in her!
Jane Wright and her super-efficient and mega-helpful team at The Nicholsons Centre. We want to shower them all with love!
Mother of a Future Prime Minister, PR Guru and Doer of Great Things, Ms Emily Bird & her supporting team at Promethean World
Sytner BMW for supplying us with the Art Car and making our scribbling dreams come true!
Martin Trepte, Laura Enfield and all at the Maidenhead Advertiser for supporting us from the very beginning. We wish Laura every success for the future.
The beautiful team at Bovilles Art Shop - Sherry, Emma, Adam & Lu. Our second family. *love*
The extraordinarily patient and talented Jon at Grayscale Design. He is the Dalai
Lama of Design.
Maria Evans from Happy Cakes and her cakes of SHEER JOY
Oliver at Norden Farm and his merry band of bunting makers!
Our husbands/partners: Clyde, Jon, Andy and Joshua, for their unfailing patience and support.
All the truly MAGNIFICENT retailers in our High Street who are so amazingly supportive of Art on the Street. Especially the Thai Shop Maidenhead, Java & Co and all the shops who have given vouchers and offers to our artists .
